In this article, we would like to show you how to copy file in Python.

Quick solution:

import shutil

shutil.copyfile(source_path, destination_path)

 

Practical example

In this example, we use copyfile() method from shutil package to copy example.txt file.

import shutil

shutil.copyfile("C:\\some_path\example_directory\example.txt",
                "C:\\some_path\example_directory\example_copy.txt")

Result:

Note:

If the file under destination_path already exist it will be replaced.
